Pauline Rowson will be revealing the secrets of crime writing at Poole Central Library

I will be at Poole Central Library on February 10th at 2pm where I will be talking about how I plot, research and write my crime novels set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England.

There are now twelve novels in the DI Andy Horton series with Fatal Catch the latest DI Andy Horton published in the UK in 2015 and the USA in January 2016  by Severn House Publishers  and like others in the series it is set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England. They have been hailed as "compelling," "multi-layered and complex" "a great read for mystery lovers".

US reviewer Booklist says of DI Andy Horton, " an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms."

I've also written two standalone crime novels and the first in a new crime series, introducing former Royal Marine Commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik in Silent Running published by Severn House in 2015. The second in the Art Marvik marine crime series, Dangerous Cargo, is to be published in May 2016.

The new marine thriller series, featuring former Royal Marine Commando Art Marvik, is also set against the backdrop of the sea.

Edwin Buckhalter, Chairman of Severn House says, 'The Art Marvik series has all the hallmarks of the Rowson  brand - a troubled hero, the setting and atmosphere, the sailing and boats, interesting  characters, and the intricate, complex plot. It is certainly something that will excite her existing fans and bring  in new readers.’

Dangerous Cargo, the second in the Art Marvik marine thriller series is to be published n the UK in May 2016 and in the USA in November 2016.

The DI Andy Horton crime novels have been optioned by top UK television production company Lime Pictures, makers of Channel 4's Hollyoaks,who are seeking to bring the enigmatic sailing detective to the television screens.

I will be at Poole Central Wednesday 10 February 2016 at 2pm.  Tickets are free and can be booked by phoning 01202 262449 (24 hr booking line) or emailing The Library asks for a £2 donation on the day.
